First of all, my thoughts are with those on the east coast of the US and Canada, who are having to deal with Hurricane Sandy. I hope that everyone is safe, and the storm passes through quickly without any devastation.
On to today's card ...
This card is for a very special 9-1-1- operator who helped save my husband's life four weeks ago. I didn't get a chance to thank him that night, so I'm sending a card to let him know we are eternally grateful.
I used my favorite stamp set from Stampin' Up! ... Lovely as a Tree. I never get tired of using this set. It's so versatile and so ... ummmm ... lovely! :)
I used the sketch from this week's Less Is More Challenge (LIM#91) to create a fall scene of trees and a sunset. (I turned the sketch on it's side.) I have always loved triptych cards and am really happy with how this turned out. Hope you like too!
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree (SU!); Be Happy Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper: White (Neenah)
Ink: Early Espresso, Old Olive, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig, sponges, and adhesives
I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to create the row of trees first. Then I sponged on the other colors before dividing the panel into three. Quick and easy card that has a lot of punch because of the bold colors of the sunset.
